Waterstones Says

The author of former Waterstones Thriller of the Month Part of the Family delves deep into the sinister connections between the deaths of two wealthy women two decades apart in this chillingly addictive page-turner.

Two women are found dead. Both had a secret. Both had a choice.

Artemis leaves the remote Greek island she grew up on to start a shiny new life in 1990s London with her British husband, a successful entrepreneur. Finally, she has escaped the ghosts of her past. Until she is found hanging from the stairs of her beautiful family home.

Two decades later, the apparent suicide of an heiress uncannily mirrors Artemis' mysterious death. And when the ensuing investigation uncovers links to a criminal cartel, National Crime Agency officer Madeleine Farrow begins to pull apart the web of deceit surrounding the two women.

The Second Woman is a deeply unsettling, brilliantly gripping story of a family legacy built upon lies.

Secrets can be suffocating... especially in the wrong hands.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘I’m addicted to the deadly glamour of Charlotte Philby’s novels’ ERIN KELLY ‘A timely, gripping and morally complex thriller’ MAIL ON SUNDAY ‘Each of Charlotte Philby’s novels bring a thought-provoking new angle to her characters – with old favourites and new intrigues emerging. The Second Woman is a page-turning thriller, but again, Philby has created a new sort of spy novel – approaching this world of skulduggery and intrigue from an entirely unique perspective. This is a clever, gripping, unsettling and thoroughly entertaining read’ HOLLY WATT ‘Following on from Part of the Family and A Double Life, this finely worked novel concludes Charlotte Philby’s triptych about the choices women might make when under pressure’ THE TIMES ‘Brilliant’ BELLA MAGAZINE ‘Gripping’ CRIME MONTHLY

With hindsight, I think I would have been better off reading the first books in this series (Part of the Family and A Double Life) before this one, The Second Woman. I might then have been more clued up with the... More
